Earlier this week we went to dine at Papagayo restaurant at Jan Thiel bay. The overall experience can be best described as memorable for all the wrong reasons. The service can be best desribed as dreadful. Menus were slow to arrive as were the first round of drinks (30 minutes). One of the main courses on the menu was 'sole... More

I was blown away by how friendly & attentive the staff were, food was delicious & the DJ set the mood for memorable meals on the beach. It reminded me of a club 55 Saint Tropez, Nikki Beach St Barth, La Piaggia Miami type of beach club without the attitude. The lobster was excellent. My son enjoyed his pasta dish..... More

We paid about $3 to get in each and were able to get chairs, cocktails and food + an amazing beach. What a gorgeous day... the... More

Very nice location. Menu looked good, however the kitchen was not able to deliver food within a reasonable time. Several guests left and after waiting 90 minutes to receive starters we called it a day before the main course. Food was mediocre and relatively overpriced. The staff remained courteous and offered to limit our bill to drinks. Hopefully its a... More

I love this restaurant for its location plus the food is excellent. However, the pool is not so nice. Either way, it's a great place and highly recommend.

It wasn't particularly easy to find vegan options in Curacao - at one point we actually drove through 4 BK drive-throughs to be told there were no veggie burgers on island until the next container arrived, so when they're out, they are out! We stumbled across this very modern complex by accident. I agree with the demographic that this place... More

Only go there if you like "the Miami feeling", lounge chairs, a lot of young people and loud music on the beach. If you want to go for a swim, sit on the beach under a palm tree and listen to the sea don't go there. I personally don't go to Curacao to sit on an over crowded beach with... More

Nice spot on the beach. Goat cheese salad is very good. The staff is friendly. The view is perfect sea view especially with sunset.

We to a reservation (and arrived at 6:30) at this upscale eatery and were happy from start to finish. We left 3 hours later well fed and very happy. In contrast to prior reviews, the cod was wonderful. Instead of the lamb, my wife and I ordered snapper, not on the menu. That also was amazing. Each of the five... More
